Why is President Obama not going to Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day? It is simple: Obama does not care about showing signs of patriotism to this nation. He does not respect liberty, and he certainly has no interest in celebrating anything that happened prior to him being elected. So it makes sense that a man like him, who has no class, and who does not care about the office of the presidency, would not even show our soldiers and veterans that he cares. Why should he? He doesn't care.
